The North Gold Coast Seahawks Basketball Association are proud to announce former Seahawk junior Katie Donovan will be a part of the SmartSkill NBL1 Seahawks in 2022.
Donovan, fresh off a State Championship title at U18s, lead her team in scoring, averaging a massive 19ppg and is ready to kick start her senior career back at her original club.
Donovan has had a hugely successful 12 months, leading her school team all the way to the CBSQ final with Southport State High, being the tournament’s leading scorer at 30ppg with a tournament high 53-point outing against Brisbane State High. Donovan is only just starting to reach her potential.
Head Coach for the SmartSkill Seahawks Women Brad Kann is pumped to have the youthful Donovan as a part of his NBL1 campaign.
“Katie has an exceptional skillset, on the offensive end with her scoring and creative ability, and the ability to defend multiple positions on the defensive end. This year we really hope to see Katie excel to another level.”
“It’s fantastic to see that Katie has seen the light and come to the Nest – we know that we can help her achieve all of her basketball goals and being around the calibre of players we will have, will only help her improve her game.”
Donovan is excited to come back to the Seahawks for her first taste of NBL1 action.
“Brad is an excellent coach from all reports, so I’m really excited to get to work with him and the rest of our squad this year,” said Donovan.
“I’m really excited to be learning off the likes of Katie Deeble, Chailee Ward and Lauren Jansen, and I’m hoping that with their experience, they’ll help me improve more and more each week.”
“I just can’t wait for the season to start.”
